Global Design Project #060-Case the Designer

This week on Global Design Project #060, we get to CASE designer Brian King.  I spent some time getting inspired by his others projects as well as the one chosen for GDP060 this week.  I love his use of layering and negative space.   This is the card from the Global Design Project this week.

I spent several days deciding exactly how I wanted to CASE this card.  May I just say that I love it when a plan comes together.  The actual card that I created this afternoon matched the image I had created in my mind this week. 

I decided to CASE the layering basic design sketch of Brian King's card.  I chose to use an embossed background on the front of the card--snowflakes embossed in white on Whisper White cardstock.  I also chose to Case a partial stamp in the bottom corner of the top layer as well as the sentiment stamped at the top of the top layer and the use of plenty of negative space on the card as well. 

I also decided to emboss both the Snowflake stamp and sentiment with silver embossing powder.  A vintage snowflake adds the final touch of bling to finish up the card and draw your attention to the snowflake stamp.
